Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Eric Jacobsohn, MBChB, FRCPC (University of Manitoba Faculty of Medicine)
Description: This is the third edition of an authoritative text on positioning during surgery and anesthesia. The first edition of this book was published in 1978, and the second edition appeared in 1987.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an up-to-date authoritative text on the principles of patient positioning and the associated complications.
Audience: The book is written for all those involved in the care of patients in the operating room, including anesthesiologists, surgeons, nurses, operating room technicians, and any others with an interest in patient positioning. Drs. Martin and Warner are internationally known experts in patient positioning. This is Dr. Warner's first appearance as a coeditor of this text.
Features: The illustrations are of exceptionally high quality and are central to making this book such an important contribution to the field of anesthesiology. The references are current and pertinent. The book is an elegant, well-bound, 345-page hard cover.
Assessment: This third edition is a welcome addition to the field of anesthesiology. The previous editions were recognized in the anesthesiology community as among the core volumes of an acceptable anesthesiology library. The new edition of this book is needed because positioning and problems associated with it have evolved from an anecdotal field to that of a clinical science of epidemiology and outcome analysis. The new edition is different from the previous editions in that the chapters previously written by surgeons have been incorporated into the overall text. This was done to minimize repetition. The authors graciously acknowledge the contribution of the surgical authors to the success of the previous editions of this book. This is a mandatory addition to all anesthesiology, surgery, and nursing libraries as well as to those of any other practitioners caring for patients in the preoperative period and other departments that have any involvement in the care of patients in the perioperative period.
